GLORIOUS DAY

I was buried beneath my shame.  Who could carry that kind of weight?

It was my tomb ‘til I met You.

I was breathing but not alive.  All my failures I tried to hide.

It was my tomb ‘til I met You.
 

You called my name and I ran out of that grave.

Out of the darkness into Your glorious day.

You called my name and I ran out of that grave.

Out of the darkness into Your glorious day.

 

Now Your mercy has saved my soul.  Now Your freedom is all that I know.

The old made new, Jesus, when I met You.

 

I needed rescue, my sin was heavy.

But chains break at the weight of Your glory.

I needed shelter, I was an orphan.  Now You call me a citizen of Heaven.

When I was broken, You were my healing.       

Now Your love is the air that I am breathing.

I have a future, my eyes are open ‘Cause when You called my name

I ran out of that grave.


BEFORE THE THRONE

Before the throne of God above I have a strong and perfect plea;

A great high priest whose name is Love who ever lives and pleads for me

My name is graven on His hands, my name is written on His heart.

I know that while in Heaven He stands

No tongue can bid me thence depart.  No tongue can bid me thence depart.

 

When Satan tempts me to despair and tells me of the guilt within,

Upwards I look and see Him there who made an end to all my sin.

Because the sinless Savior died, my sinful soul is counted free,

For God the just is satisfied to look on Him and pardon me,     

To look on Him and pardon me.

 

Behold Him there, the risen Lamb; my perfect spotless Righteousness,

The great unchangeable all I Am, the King of glory and of grace.

One with Himself, I cannot die; my soul is purchased by His blood.

    My life is hid with Christ on high

With Christ, my Savior and my God.  with Christ, my Savior and my God.

 

He has worked so we can rest in His blood and righteousness.

We will taste the victory of his death and life for me.


ALWAYS

My foes are many.  They rise against me.  But I will hold my ground.

I will not fear the war.  I will not fear the storm.

My help is on the way.  My help is on the way.

Oh my God He will not delay.  My refuge and strength always.  

I will not fear His promise is true.

My God will come through always.  Always.

 

Trouble surrounds me chaos abounding.  My soul will rest in You.

I will not fear the war.  I will not fear the storm.

My help is on the way.  My help is on the way.

 

I lift my eyes up.  My help comes from the Lord.

I lift my eyes up.  My help comes from the Lord.

I lift my eyes up.  My help comes from the Lord.

I lift my eyes up.  My help comes from the Lord.

 

I lift my eyes up.  My help comes from the Lord. (4x)


I WILL BOAST IN CHRIST

All I have because of Jesus.  All this promise won for me.

When He paid the highest ransom.  Once for always for my freedom.

 

I will boast in Christ alone.  His righteousness and not my own.

I will cling to Christ my hope.  His mercy reigns now and forever.

 

Love will never lose its power.  All my failures could not erase.

Now I walk within your favor.  Grace unending my salvation.

 

What can wash away my sin.  Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

What can make me whole again.  Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

 

O precious is the flow that makes me white as snow.

No other fount I know nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
